Truth be told, around 2008 I worked at a Chinese Take Out place doing the phones and serving as the English speaking member of the staff. The work attire was “wear whatever the hell you want”, so I’d alternate band tee shirts and such hoping that customers caught on.

Anyway, this dude comes in and notices either my Sonic Youth Or Dinosaur Jr shirt and he suggested I take a listen to the Heartless Bastards. The name was bad ass enough, and when I found them on Pandora Internet Radio I was stunned at how much I actually liked a band currently making music.

Then, when I was booted from the message boards and refunded my money I got away from Pandora, and Rock radio in NYC is non-existent. So I lost the Heartless Bastards in the shuffle.

But alas, they come to The Ed Sullivan Theater to take the Letterman stage. With the new album out “Arrow”, they played “Parted Ways”. And I’m so happy getting into the “social media Journalism” thing found me back listening to the sweet tunes of the Heartless Bastards.

And Big Ups to the AudioPerv for the Video

Jay Porks here.. I used to be a contributor on here. I\'m a little more than that now. This used to be the place I\'d go spill my rants and raves about artists and music I love and loathe. I still do that. But now I host a weekly podcast to get things off my chest, and since I have you here I\'m gonna tell you about it: Used to talk about fun things like music and pop culture, but these days it\'s all flushing the fascist crime syndicate from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and taking back our country. A hostile foreign nation installed a corrupt racist rapist fake rich criminal to power and now he holds the nuclear codes. We have a lot of work to do to fix this nation and it starts with VOTING. Sometimes we go through the music headlines of the week along with other things I feel strongly about. Like ending Cannabis Prohibition, the sad state of affairs with the tri-state area sports teams, The struggles of an anti-social mess attempting to live in a social media world.
